    Mail? How the hell does Amazon deliver to the middle of nowhere but there is a mail restrictions

    The problem with mail in ballots is that some (most) states send out ballots without requiring proof of ID. The problem with this is that they DO NOT do audits of their mailing lists. That is why ballots get sent to dead people and people who have moved out of the state.
    EVERY STATE should be mandated to audit and update voter roles quarterly to ensure accuracy that ballots aren't getting sent to dead people, people who have moved, illegal aliens, amd people who have NO RIGHT to vote.

    Ok:
    Any state that passes or adopts these "keep whites in power" laws/regulations will have their electors decertified. The difference is that true
    Americans want to hear from
    ALL voters.
    And the Right should be worried when everyone's voice is heard in a national election; they lose every time.
    There's what's legal.
    Then there's what's right
    Seldom is there a nexus.

    It’s not harder to vote. It’s harder to cheat

    A state photo ID costs $16. Someone tell me how it’s racist and not affordable to attain one? If you’re here legally and looking to vote honestly there’s no issue. Someone please explain the opposition’s perspective on voter ID laws.

    I'm surprised that Nevada has enough Republicans to try to restrict voting. I thought Nevada flipped from a purple state to a blue state years ago.

    Isn't making comments like "people of color don't know how to get an I.D or use a computer" is racist?

    The only ones pushing racism is Communist propaganda, read your history books, or did you guys burn them all. MSM is a joke.

    Voter ID is common sense, unless you need to cheat to win of course. Then it's your worst nightmare which explains the Lefts behavior.

    I Live In Seattle And I Vote Through The Mail. It Is Very Helpful And I Vote Early Cause There Is A Deadline When You Need To Turn It In. Sometimes I Drop It In The Drop Box. Protect Your Right To Vote Regardless Of How You Do It. Trump Is A Sore Loser And Wants To Blame Us For It. If Anything Change The Electoral Vote It Should Be Majority Vote To Me. Did You Need ID To Vote Before In The Past? Why Need ID Now? Cause Trump Lost We Need ID?

    I hope this attempt stirs more Democrats and independents to get out more and vote against the GOP. Lets hope 2022 gets revenge on them at all levels of government.

    I guess I live in a special place because all of my black friends and acquaintances are literate and hard working. Not only able but willing to put on their big girl/boy pants and behave like responsible adults.

    I say if we don’t have a civil war now we’re going to have one later because these republicans are abnormally insane and will drive this country into extinction 👌🏽

    The Republicans are attempting to get rid of democracy. This is wrong and illegal

    Ffs, Because of a pandemic they lack regulations, and now that it's almost over, Call it voter suppression to go back to the way it was ran before.

    Democrats don't want voter ID laws. They want people without any proof of citizenship to be able to vote.

    Are you stupid? As an American you are legally required to have identification on you at all times. Anyone who is too fucking lazy to get an identification has no room to complain if they get denied trying to vote without an identification.

    Bad news for the fake news media…

    The picture ID with the mail in vote is only going to be used to eliminate the leg work of finding out if the voter is black. Open the mail in vote, photo ID is a black face=vote gets thrown out. There wasn’t any voter fraud but there’s going to be. Jim Crow reinstatement coming soon.

    Requiring a license is not targeting minorities. All legal residents; white, black, purple, green, can get a photo ID.
    Why is it okay to require a license for a gun but not to vote?

    I'm sorry but a person who lives in a rural community is not a minority. Vote fairly. If you have nothing to hide, and support election integrity, then there is not a problem here. Democrats are just upset because they know this means trump will win. I hope all these laws pass, except for the one in georgia where you can't hand out water. Other than that one messed up change, I support this wholeheartedly. 💯

    AS LONG AS REPUBLICANS ARE IN POSITIONS OF POWER IN TEXAS…YOU CAN LOOK FOR MORE LEGISTLATION THAT WILL UNDERMIND CIVIL RIGHTS AND CIVL LIBERITIES OF THE MOST VULNERABLE. VOTE VOTE VOTE 2022

    Oddly enough I am going to guess that the GOP would not have such a hard on for making it harder to vote if the elections went their way. Though I suppose they have been making it harder for people to vote for a long time so….

    What are red states? Communists? Why are you manipulating who can and cannot vote?

    The same people who cry foul over calls from the right for voter ID laws are the VERY same people calling for the gov to create covid vaccine passports/id

    Any type of voter restriction/supression is illegal, a federal crime and the politicians that try to pass bills to do that must to be made accountable kicked out of Office and put in prison. PERIOD!
